Wear and tear theory of Aging
- Free Radicals
glucose added randomly to proteins affect activity
- damage proteins, DNA
- "oxidative stress"
Genetic Theory of Aging
attributes aging to cessation of mitosis programmed into our genes
Telomeres shorten with each mitosis when to short no more mitosis occurs
Germ cells have longer telomeres
